Greater Good

It is truly inspiring and humbling to see what technology can be capable of. Yes, we have all these wonderful devices meant to entertain us, to help us manage our lives, and to help us stay connected to one another at all times. These are fascinating little objects in their own right, sure, but there is a bigger picture here. We are talking about technology that has a profound effect on the lives of others. Medicine advances just as quickly as all other branches of technology, and is responsible for the well-being of millions of people the world over at any one time. This technology has a direct influence on the everyday lives of people, allowing them to function at a normal level and indeed allowing them to function at all. We have come a long, long way from even five or ten years ago, and the future promises that we will be able to do things that were only possible in the most fantastical science fiction stories.

Of course, that is not to say that the technology we already possess cannot also do great things to help people. Take video games, for instance. Yes, it may seem a little far-fetched to assume that video games might actually be anything more than fun distractions or hobbies. However, it is true that we can utilize certain aspects of gaming to help improve or even save lives. A recent review of 12 medical studies by a Toronto research group states that stroke patients who play video games such as those on the Playstation 3 or the Nintendo Wii were five times more likely to improve the motor function in their arms than those patients who had standard therapy.
